HOUSTON – The newest Houston Rocket, Carmelo Anthony, was spotted in Houston on Monday hours before he officially signed a deal with the team.
A source told KPRC2 that Anthony was at a hospital in the Texas Medical Center, where he is completing a physical.
ESPN reported that Anthony signed a $2.4 million, one-year deal with the Rockets.
Anthony’s move to the Rockets from the Oklahoma Thunder was a bit of a whirlwind. OKC traded him to the Atlanta Hawks, which placed him on waivers. After clearing waivers, Anthony became a free agent.
